Kenmore eco cycle front load washer. error E70 displays and stops washer. What does E70 mean?


You should check the model number of the washer. If the model number starts 417, then the washer was made by Frigidaire. In that case, the E70 error indicates that cold water is not being detected at the washer inlet sensor.

In some cases, this could be due to connecting the hot water line to the cold water inlet (and the cold water to the hot water inlet). Make sure that the cold water shut-off valve is open. Try swapping the water hoses (close the shut-off valves first). Try new hoses; some anti-flood hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect damage. Thus you won't have sufficient water coming into the washer. (You can check this yourself. Turn off the shut-off valves. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and put the ends into a bucket. Then open the shut-off valves and check the water flow.) While you have the hoses off, check for debris in the inlet filters.

If the hoses are fine, you probably have a problem with the washer's inlet valve or the reed switch that measures incoming water. The inlet valve should be replaced if you find that only hot water enters the washer.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your washer for more information. It will be on the inside of the door opening (probably at the top).

Water not filling up kenmore washer model number11024642300


The most common thing that causes the washer not to fill up with water is the water inlet valve. If this valve has power to it when it's supposed to be filling with water, and you have adequate water supply to the washer, then the washer should be filling with water. The part number for the replacement valve is 285805.

The water will not shut off completly it keeps trickeling in and will fill the drum after a week.


Hello,

The reason that is happening is because the spring inside of the water inlet valve that is suppose to close it is weak and its not fully closing the valve so water seeps through it into the drum of the washer. To repair that the water inlet valve will need to be replaced.

If ya reply with the model number i will give ya the part number for that valve and instructions of how to replace it.

The model number can be found on a label inside of the door on the rim

I have a kenmore elite hv3 model 110.44832 201


"FH" is a "No Water Detect" error code. This means the washer has little or no water flow being detected during the initial fill cycle. The following link epxlains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608753-fh_error_code

If your cold water will not shut off, this could very well be the source of the error code. The water inlet valve has two or more electronically controlled solenoids. If the solenoid fails, the result is an inlet valve that leaks by. You can test this theory by unplugging the washer. If the water flow continues to run, the valve needs replaced.

If you determine the valve to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

Sources for replacement parts are mentioned in the link I provided. If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore series 80 washing machine overfills, it will not start washing, it just fills and runs over


Hi, The first part to check is the inlet valve. If you shut the washer off, will the water stop? If the water continues when the power is off to the washer, change the inlet/mixer valve.
If the water stops filling when the power to thee washer is shut off, the water level switch needs checked.
Please let em know if either of these help so I can assist you further.

Fills with water when not in use.


Hi, If the washer fills up when off, you will need to change the inlet mixer valve. Do you have to shut the water source valve off to keep it from filling up?
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Wont fill with hot water


3 things to check.. Make sure that you are getting hot water upply. Check your water inlet valve. IF both are ok then check the switch to make sure that it is sending power to the water inlet valve to let it open. These parts can be found behind the knobs after you remove the cover

How to access filter for kenmore elite front load washer


To access the pump drain filter, follow the instructions in the link provided:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

It is recommended by the manufacturer that if the pump still does not operate correctly after cleaning, to replace it. It does not take much to damage the motor and impeller of these small drain pumps.

The water fill problem is usually caused by a water inlet valve that is not shutting off properly. To access the fill valve solenoids follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then off.
3. The inlet valve is located at the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). This is where the fill hoses attach.
4. A resistance reading of the valve solenoids should be between 750 and 850 ohms.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water it is common for sediment and/or deposits to accumulate in the water inlet valve and cause problems with either filling or shutting off. you can attempt to remove the valve and clean it to see if this will correct the problem. Use white distilled vinegar to submerge the plastic portion of the valve in. DO NOT submerge the electrical contacts. Sometimes soaking in vinegar will dissolve and remove hard water deposits and sediment. If you wish to simply replace the valve, follow these steps:

1. Leave washer unplugged and remove electric connections to inlet valve.
2. Shut off water supply and remove fill hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the dispenser hose from the inlet valve and remove mounting screw(s).
4. Install replacement valve in the reverse order of the steps provided.

Replacement parts can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites have great service and offer competitive pricing. I would recommend checking with all three sites for the best price. Use your model number to initiate your search.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly


Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.
